Cameroon Sustainability Council

The formation of our Cameroon Sustainability Council (CSC) is our next step in becoming the world’s leader in truly sustainable natural rubber. The CSC brings together international, multi-stakeholder individuals along the value chain, uniting over a progressive agenda of ecological conservation and socio-economic development.

The Founding Members represent leading institutions in business, politics and NGOs who are deeply committed to monitoring the implementation of the Group’s Sustainable Natural Rubber Supply Chain Policy (SNRSCP) and other external party recommendations. Abraham Baffoe, Chairperson of the Council and Africa Regional Director of Proforest, commented that ‘the establishment of the Cameroon Sustainability Council is a courageous commitment by the management of Corrie MacColl to demonstrate an innovative approach to the transparency and implementation of the company’s sustainability efforts. It has the potential to become the future model for corporate commitments to sustainability.’ The Council will act independent of management and shareholders, and has extensive rights of information, consultation and initiative.
